Two men in aprons carry a heavy pot between them on a pole at an outdoor aid relief kitchen after the Long Beach earthquake. A large black metal box behind them might be an oven. The ground is strewn with boxes and houses are in the background.
The Long Beach earthquake of 1933 took place on March 10, with a magnitude of 6.4, causing widespread damage to buildings throughout Southern California. The epicenter was offshore, southeast of Long Beach on the Newport-Inglewood Fault. An estimated fifty million dollars' worth of property damage resulted, and 120 lives were lost.
